Missouri Freshman Ann Wagner Tabbed as ‘Most Likely to be House Leadership Favorite’

AnnWagnerPolitco reports Missouri rookie Congresswoman Ann Wagner from St. Louis has already attracted the attention of the GOP House leadership.
In a rundown of Congressional freshman to watch, Wagner, from greater St. Louis, made Politico’s cut:
Wagner may be a first-time congresswoman, but she’s no stranger to GOP politics. Wagner served as the chairwoman of Missouri’s Republican Party, co-chair of the Republican National Committee during George W. Bush’s first term and as chairwoman of Sen. Roy Blunt’s 2010 Senate campaign. As her party has struggled to make gains with women voters, Wagner is in a prime position to help her leadership: She worked extensively at the RNC on initiatives to reach out to women voters. She comes into the House to take the seat vacated by former Rep. Todd Akin, who became infamous for his remarks on “legitimate rape.” In October, before she was elected, she was tapped by Speaker John Boehner to give the weekly Republican address, and she started a PAC to contribute to her fellow Republican candidates. The Weekly Standard reported that Wagner was selected to be a key liaison between House freshmen and Republican leadership.
